Weight Loss Q & A

Do I need to lose weight?

Complex factors — from genetics to lifestyle habits — influence your body weight. Body mass index (BMI) is a medical measurement that compares your weight to your height. While every individual is different, a healthy BMI is between 18.5-24.9.

You may be considered overweight if your BMI is 25-29.9, or obese if it’s 30 or higher. Being overweight or obese is a cosmetic concern for many, but it’s also a medical condition that could negatively impact your health.

Obesity puts extra strain on your body. It’s linked to a range of health issues, including:

  • Type 2 diabetes
  • High cholesterol
  • High blood pressure
  • Heart disease
  • Neuropathy
  • Arthritis
  • Sleep apnea
  • Infertility

If you’re overweight or obese, losing extra pounds could have a positive impact on your health and well-being.
